I bought a Groupon for an oil change and alignment check and then was told it was going to cost more $22 more. Nothing was said in the fine print of the Groupon except the $3 disposal fee. Then was told I can either pay it or get my money back for the Groupon. Well this posing as more of a challenge than it's worth and needing an oil change I decided to pay extra. Which after all wasn't really a deal at all. So your Groupon was a scam to look cheap and then overcharge once their in the door. Oh and on top of that I was then talked out of the alignment check that was included because 'it would take to long'. Then I asked for a brake check, which it said I could do in the fine print of the Groupon and was told they could only do a visual, 'taking the tires off would be to much work'. The whole time I felt like I was getting scammed. Will never be back and would never recommend. Oh and he almost put the wrong oil in car.

Very good work! I just think it was pricey for an oil and filter change. it was the same price as in the dealership brand.

by - Verified Customer February 22, 2017

Great service and lot's of great information about anything you may ask about car performance and future repair.

Scheduled an oil change. Took me right on time. I was concerned about the battery. It did need to be replaced. Car was actually ready ahead of time. Great service. Courteous and respectful.

by - Verified Customer January 14, 2017

It is always a pleasant, non-pressured experience and this is why all our vehicles are serviced at Precision Tune!

by - Verified Customer January 13, 2017

Oil change and transmission fluid changed. I came for an oil change and didn't anticipate needing to get my fluid changed out as well. This added some time and money, which I agreed to. I don't like surprises and waiting, but they are always keen on giving you an almost spot on wait time. At this time I have no complaints!

by - Verified Customer January 12, 2017

The 30 point AAA inspection and oil change was fine, but I was told my 2011 Ford Edge needed a transmission fluid change every 30,000 miles. I did not have the fluid changed and asked the dealer how often the transmission fluid needed to be changed and they said the first time is at 120,000 miles. So good thing I didn't have it changed. Was it a scam or a mistake?

The rubbing/vibration/friction has not been resolved. That is the reason I initially brought it in. For the cost of the labor of don't feel the cars issues where fixed properly. I'm worried it may not be safe to drive.

Took care of the problem, replaced fuel pump. Wish they showed me the new pump and the old pump as I was in the office all the time. Had to go back week later to have the cowling over the engine tightened. He only but in two nuts instead of the three called for.

Had a smog check. It passed. Thank you.

Chris is excellent! He's always honest about what our car needs, which hasn't always been the case with other sale reps. Chris is the reason our family continues to go there.

I cannot express how professional this shop is. Working with the crew there and the owner, Clarence, has always been a rock solid experience where the job is done right. Clarence and his team: hands down my number one choice for a stress free, professional atmosphere. They know cars AND how to treat people.

They did a good job and it was finished faster than expected. However, I just took my car to be smogged and it failed and they asked if I had repairs recently, so I am not sure if something was wrong with the repair.

Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Courteous and quick to make a diagnosis of problems. The communication was very clear and I felt comfortable with the work they said I needed to have done.

by May 28, 2016

The shop correctly diagnosed the problem and repaired it with proficiency. But I find them to be expensive. Their shop rates are high. Most shops I have frequented charge for a diagnosis, but waive most or all of it if they do the repair, they charged separately for the diagnosis. I was charged for one hour of test driving to make sure that the repair was good. I am glad for the checkout, but $112 for a drive around the block? Again, most shops I have ever used have not charged for this.

by - Verified Customer May 27, 2016

Chris provides a very personal experience and strives in providing more than enough information in order to decide the best options for repair and service.
